As a result, a whole new focus was given to the importance of indoor air quality.
Silicon Valley-based company Airdog pushes the standards for clean air higher than anyone else, by utilising a hyper-efficient design with advanced filtration technology.
Standalone air purifiers are not like traditional fans in that they don’t just push air around, they suck the air through a filter, removing a variety of particles, and circulate the clean air. Air purifiers can remove viruses, bacteria, dust, pollen, odours, and smoke, depending on how fine the filtration system is, which can make a surprising impact on both comfort and actual respiratory health.
Air Purifiers also help to resolve the general staleness of air that happens in the workplace quite often, sometimes without even becoming noticeable. Think of it this way, without opening windows or running forced air into the workplace, the lion’s share of the air is the same, day-in, day-out!
HEPA Purifiers (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) are now quite common office air solutions. The idea behind HEPA filters is to have multiple layers of tubular fibres arranged in various directions, which are designed to trap air contaminants like pollen, dust, and other fine particles. By trapping the solid contaminants, the air that passes through is cleaner, and less likely to cause respiratory irritation.
In order for filters or purifiers to be considered HEPA-quality, they need to trap 99.97% of particles that are 0.3 μm in size. Obviously that is quite small, and at this size dust and pollen are removed, as well as some other allergens that would present respiratory issues. However, HEPA-grade purification doesn’t trap contaminants smaller than 0.3μ in size so there is still a shortcoming with this technology. That’s where Airdog steps in.
For reference, these are the sizes of common air pollutants:
Airdog filters the air down to 0.0146μm, making it more effective at air purification than HEPA filters.
